Skyrocketing chip prices

Chip prices have been skyrocketing and there is still no sign of going back to normal. Prices of automotive grade micro-controllers have almost ten-folded, 9-axis motion sensors tripled, CAN transceivers doubled. As a countermeasure, we have raised production batch volume to trade off for a better unit price. However, we still have to raise prices for several products in order to be sustainable. Some kits will be discontinued due to small volumes. We might also be forced to downgrade motion sensor from ICM-20948 to MPU6050 in Freematics ONE+ from next manufacture batch as the former is not only unaffordable but also difficult to source now. We are trying everything possible to keep supply of our products in this ever crazy world.

Business as usual

Under current COVID-19 lockdown in Australia, we will still keep business as usual as we operate as an online business and logistics is still working well. It is highly recommended for customers to choose DHL Express as shipping method as standard shipping (DHL eCommerce or Australia Post international shipping) may be significantly delayed due to massive passenger flights cancellation. Please understand there could be one day delay on dispatching because we want to help our DHL driver come less often for pickup to reduce their workload.
